A 19th century Antique Gilt Bronze Bouillotte Lamp
23" h x 13.5" diameter
A classic 19th century gilt bronze bouillotte lamp later wired for electricity. The bouillotte lamp in the form of a shaded candelabra was placed on the bouillotte table and used for playing the French card game of Bouillotte popular in the 18th and 19th century. I got this from a retired antiques dealer. The casting is particularly nice with birds heads supporting the bobeches. Condition: Photos do a great job of showing condition. Wiring is new. The surfaces show overall wear and patination as expected.
